She is one of three sophomore girls awarded a five-day, all-expense paid trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. The test annually is sponsored by the State Department, American Legion and Auxiliary. Ed Tucholski, Americanism chairman for the Rossford American Legion Post 533, said the tests consists of 50 questions and an essay. The questions are based on flag etiquette, the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, plus federal, state, local and school board government. This year’s essay question was “If you were a member of the U.S. Congress, what would your priorities be?” The test is given annually to all Ohio boys and girls in grades 10 to 12. The American Legion Department of Ohio has been testing youth in the state since 1936, most recently administering the Americanism and Government Test to approximately 65,000 Ohio high school students. Savannah, the daughter of Ron and Lisa McIntosh, is one of three sophomore girls who scored the highest in the state of Ohio. Rossford Mayor Neil MacKinnon III recently presented Savannah with a proclamation on behalf of the City of Rossford congratulating her on the achievement. “We are proud to recognize Savannah McIntosh for her hard work and dedication, and we commend her on her outstanding performance,” Mayor MacKinnon said, reading the proclamation in Savannah’s honor.

At the February 5 board of trustees meeting, Fire Chief Tom Brice presented the 2013 fire/EMS report. The fire chief noted that calls were up by 58 from the previous year. The township had 1,700 runs in 2013, compared to 1,642 in 2012. Those include 1,395 (82 percent) calls for EMS, and 305 (18 percent) for fires. Of the calls for emergency medical services, 82 percent were for injuries and illnesses. Other calls were falls, 170; multivehicle accident, 152; heart problems, 135; breathing problems, 124; trauma, 66, and unconscious, 65. “Our medical direction is provided by Dr. Tom Boggs, D.O., a board-certified physician in emergency medicine,” said the chief. “We function as an extension of the emergency department, and have the equipment to care for everything from a sprained ankle to a full cardiac arrest.” He noted that patients requiring transport are taken to one of nine area hospitals. “We generally try to transport patients to the hospital of their choice.” Certain situations call for patients to be transported to a specific hospital. “If a patient is suffering from a heart attack, in almost all cases they will be taken to St. Luke’s Hospital because of its proximity and cardiac services available,” he explained. Last year, the EMS also assigned Captain Paul Weist and firefighter/paramedic Troy Bernhard to the Northern Regional Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit. The chief said the men received 40 hours of additional training at the Bowling Green State University Fire School on how to deal with battlefield type injuries. “In the event of a SWAT deployment, these two paramedics would accompany the unit to deal with injuries or illnesses,” he said. The EMS department also continued to provide CPR training under Captain Mike Vajen. “Last year, 26 classes were held educating nearly 150 people in first aid and CPR,” the chief said, adding that the department hosted external instructors who taught an additional 40 classes. “In all we educated nearly 300 people.” Classes are offered for $30 per student, he said, and, anyone interested in taking a course is asked to contact Captain Vajen at 419-8723958. With regard to the fire department, the chief said the majority of the 305 calls pertained to alarms with 121, followed by 41 open burns and 38 structure fires. The department also responded to 14 vehicle fires, 11 appliance fires, 10 grass fires and four electrical fires. “During all of these responses there were no civilian casualties, and we did not suffer any injuries to any of our personnel at fire scenes,” Chief Brice said. “We also were very fortunate that none of the fires were deemed to be of a suspicious nature.” In 2013 Fire Inspector Keith Feeney conducted more than 400 inspections and found about 1,300 violations. “The most common were for electrical hazards, exit signs/lights, fire extinguishers, improper storage and door obstructions,” said the chief. In his report, Chief Brice also noted that mutual aid with neighboring departments is going well and “making all of our communities a safer place to live.” The township has automatic aid agreements with the cities of Perrysburg and Rossford and Lake and Troy townships. “Last year, we received auto-aid from our partners 21 times and provided it 36 times.” The fire/EMS depart- ment continues to collect a portion of its operating budget through EMS billing, explained the chief. “Last we year, we collected $371,232,” he said, noting that two years ago, the township contracted with Medicount Management of Cincinnati to handle EMS billing. Terms of the agreement call for the company to retain 7 percent of whatever is collected. In 2013, the department also implemented a billing system for motor vehicle accidents (MVA) to help recoup some of the costs. “Every year our department responds to over 100 calls for motor vehicle accidents, and many of these involve people who are not township residents,” Chief Brice said. “In our first year, we collected over $8,000 through MVA billing.” The chief’s report also included: •The retirement of Captain Brian Bugbee and volunteer firefighter Frank Vallas, who were with the department for 23 and 28 years respectively. “Both of these men will be missed.” •Promotions of Captain Jim Rodriguez to deputy chief and Matt Homik and Mike Vajen to captains. •An announcement that the department received several grants including one for $38,000, from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, used to purchase auto-cot loaders for two ambulances. •An update on department training. Personnel completed more than 3,000 hours of training. Among the topics covered were emergency vehicle driving, pump operations, hazardous material, rope rescue, structural firefighting, airway management, trauma, medical emergencies, pediatrics and geriatrics. Administrator discusses partnerships and city’s continued financial stability Rossford City Administrator Ed Ciecka was the guest speaker at the Rossford Business Association’s January luncheon meeting, which was held at Hollywood Casino. Mr. Ciecka, who has served for 10 years as city administrator, said he is proud of Rossford’s financial stability during and following the recent economic depression. “The city did not run a deficit and we’re not going bankrupt,” he said. “It’s so important for a city to understand where it is in its ability to sustain itself.” City officials are committed to providing a high level of service to the community, he told the 70-some RBA members and guests in attendance. “So Rossford can be a profitable place to grow and do business,” Mr. Ciecka added. He also noted the city has established successful partnerships with the RBA, Rossford Convention and Visitors Bureau, Rossford Public Library and Rossford Beautification Committee. The city administrator said Rossford also is working with Rossford Schools and area communities on regional projects for more sharing of resources.

By Beth Church A hearing last week concerning the pending demolition of the deteriorated house at 545 Glenwood Road has been continued until next week. Louis Bauer, owner of the property, is appealing a demolition order by the city. Mr. Bauer, a former Rossford mayor who now lives in Perrysburg, presented his appeal to the city nuisance appeals board at a February 7 hearing. Attorney Rex Huffman, who chairs the nuisance appeals board, said the purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the property is dangerous or a public nuisance, and to decide if more than 30 days should be granted to Mr. Bauer to abate the nuisance. Mr. Bauer said he was concerned about the procedures of the hearing and that criminal charges may be pending against him. “This is not a claim that government can’t control private property,” he said. “But that we have certain privileges and rights under the law. We need to address problems reasonably.” For more than an hour, Mr. Bauer questioned City Administrator Ed Ciecka about a series of notices to abate a nuisance issued by the city during the past year. The notices were issued August 22, October 8 and October 31. The notices ordered Mr. Bauer to complete the following: •Repair the structural frame of the building. •Replace all missing siding and repair the exterior so it is free from holes. •All bare wood, including that on the porch, windows and fascia boards, must have adequate protective covering. •The roof must be repaired with permanent materials to be weather-tight. •All windows, doors and the front porch must be in good repair. •The building must be repaired so it is safe for occupancy. •The foundation must be repaired, free of defects with replacement of missing blocks and mortar. The third notice stated that the city would take action as of November 12, if clean up of the property was not under way. Mr. Bauer noted that he had sent a schedule of repairs by e-mail to Mr. Ciecka last fall, but the city administrator did not respond. The property owner claims that Rossford’s code section 1327.039(a) gives him the right to repair his property, if it is “reasonable.” Mr. Ciecka agreed that he did not respond to the proposed schedule. “I was not going to accept your schedule, based on the nuisance that’s existed and the time it’s existed,” he explained. “After the number of years this building has been under consideration by the health department and the city, and that has not been complied with, I didn’t judge that it was reasonable.” In 2012, Mr. Bauer was found guilty in Perrysburg Municipal Court of 360 counts of violating the Ohio Building Code at the Glenwood house. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Wood County Health Department that first began The house at 545 Glenwood Road, is owned by former mayor Louis Bauer. in 2003. The 360 counts covered violations such as roof shingles and soffit missing, windows inoperable, a basement window missing, foundation deteriorating, gaps between the boards of the porch and holes in the walls. Mr. Bauer pointed out that another Rossford code section prevents the city from ordering demolition of a nuisance if repairs are being made. Mr. Ciecka responded, “If you were making progress on the building, the city would not be seeking demolition of the building.” Mr. Bauer said his schedule of repairs included a timeline of work through May 2014, and he promised that within three weeks the front of the house would be repaired. The city administrator said he does not believe the outline was reasonable “considering the condition of the property.” “We saw no work at the house,” he added. Due to the length of the hearing, Mr. Huffman asked if he could meet with Mr. Bauer and the city attorneys to reach some agreements and narrow the testimony, and they agreed. The city was represented at the hearing by Law Director Kevin Heban and attorney Kent Murphree. The board decided to continue the hearing at 11 a.m., Tuesday, February 18, at the municipal building, 133 Osborn Street. The other nuisance appeals board members are Pat Murtha, Jim Richards, Ryan Stautzenbach of the Rossford Fire Department and Steve Mochon of the Wood County building inspector’s office. Also attending the hearing were four city council members, Mayor Neil MacKinnon III, Fire Chief Jim Verbosky, Assistant Chief Josh Drouard and Zoning Inspector Mark Zuchowski–many of whom were to be called upon for testimony at the hearing. Three-way commissioner’s race likely By Beth Church A three-way Republican race for Wood County Commissioner likely will face voters in the May primary election. Last week, three Republicans filed to campaign for the seat currently held by Doris Herringshaw: •Mrs. Herringshaw of Wingston Road, Bowling Green, who has served since January 2013, when she was appointed to the office. •Kristi Kennelly of Pin Oak Court, Perrysburg, who is an administrator at Hondros College of Business in Maumee and worked for the Romney Presidential campaign in Wood County. •James P. Matuszak of Laurel Lane, Perrysburg, who was sworn in as a new member of Perrysburg City Council last month and owns an accounting firm in Perrysburg. The winner of the Republican primary will face Democrat Andrew J. Newlove of Erie Court, Bowling Green. He is a realtor and broker at Newlove Realty, Inc. in Bowling Green. February 5 was the deadline for county and state candidates to file with the Wood County Board of Elections. However, due to inclement weather, the deadline was extended to February 6.

The Board of Elections was scheduled to meet February 13 to certify candidates and issues for the primary ballot. School year extended four days With the closure of Rossford Schools on February 5, the district has accumulated nine calamity days–or four days beyond the allotted five. “If nothing would change as of February 6, we would have the four additional days to make up,” Superintendent Dan Creps said. The current plan to make up the days is to add them to the end of the school year calendar, he explained. Assuming no more changes occur, the last day for students would be Thursday, June 5, and the last day for teachers, Friday, June 6. “This is the situation as it stands today, and I ask that everyone be prepared and plan accordingly should this be the direction we need to take in order to meet the legal requirements,” Mr. Creps said. He noted that state legislation has been introduced in Columbus that could provide an additional four calamity days–for this year only–to districts. If approved, the school calendar would be revised, Mr. Creps added. On January 30, State Senator Randy Gardner announced that a bill extending the number of calamity days by four has passed an Ohio House committee and will now go to the full House. If the bill passes the House, it will then go to the Senate for approval, he said, adding that the bill is moving quickly. On January 27, Ohio Governor John Kasich asked the General Assembly and state Department of Education to work together on legislation providing a one-time increase in the number of days that schools can take off because of snow or bad weather. The governor said a one-time increase of just a few days is needed due to the unusually severe winter weather this year, which has resulted in many Ohio schools already using–or close to using–their five allowable “calamity” days. “School closures can be an inconvenience, but student safety always comes first. Many schools have already hit the maximum number of snow days, or will soon. And if they exceed it and have to extend the school year, it can wreak havoc with schools’ budgets and schedules,” he said. Ohio law allows schools five “calamity” days each year before they must start adding days to the school year.

Derek Mack drops 32 on Woodmore Wildcats Bulldogs shut down Fostoria Redmen, 73-18 By Michael Krieger Rossford’s Derek Mack fueled a potent offensive evening scoring 32 points as the Bulldogs crushed Woodmore, 78-45 on February 4. Mack’s decisive individual performance set the tone early for RHS. He scored 13 of the team’s 15 points in the first quarter and lifted the Bulldogs to a seven-point lead that they never relinquished. He remained on fire through the second period and finished the half with 24 points. For the game, he was 11 for 14 from the field and added six rebounds and four steals to go with the scoring barrage. After Mack’s first half performance, the Bulldogs went into the locker room with a 33-26 lead. To open the second half, senior Mack Miller added 11 points of his own. His streak occurred during a threeminute stretch when the Bulldogs went on a 19-0 run and ran the score to 52-26 before Woodmore’s Drew Lewandowski knocked down a three for the Wildcats’ only score of the period. The Bulldogs then ran off 10 more points to finish the quarter leading 62-29. Early in the fourth quarter, Rossford went to the bench, inserting players used to seeing action in the JV games, to seal the victory. Both teams played even for the remainder of the contest, but the damage was already done and Rossford prevailed. Rossford vs. Fostoria On Friday, the Bulldogs returned home to face the Fostoria Redmen. Despite freezing temperatures outdoors, the Bulldog defense turned up the heat, icing the Redmen 73-18 for one of the most lopsided victories in years. The Bulldogs dominated the game right from the opening tip when Miller passed to Mack, who connected for a three-pointer from the corner to open the scoring. From there, RHS didn’t look back as the team embarked on a 22-2 run. Fostoria did not get their second basket until 1:10 remained in the first quarter. Leading 26-4, Rossford opened the second quarter Mack Miller added 11 points during a three-minute stretch in the Woodmore game. with two quick scores in the paint from Brian Burks to highlight another 10-0 run. The Bulldogs utilized a balanced attack on offense throughout the game, but the real story was defense. They continually turned back Fostoria, causing poor shot selection and turnovers. The Bulldogs converted in transition to easily break the game open with a 40-9 lead at the half. The defensive prowess was particularly evident in the third quarter when the Bulldogs held Fostoria scoreless in the period. Leading 61-9, Coach Brian Vorst went to his bench early in the fourth quarter. The Redmen finally broke their scoring drought at 6:35 remaining in the game but only managed nine points afterward against a Rossford line-up entirely of JV players. Derek Mack led all scorers with 16 points while Burks was a force inside, scoring 11 points and pulling down 8 rebounds. Miller also chipped in 10 points mostly from the perimeter. At the end of the game, Coach Vorst commented that the Bulldogs have been play- ing great defense lately. “We’re getting a lot of leadership on both ends of the floor, from all of our kids, not just our seniors. Everyone is stepping up,” he added. Rossford runs its overall record to 12-4 and 9-1 in the NBC. The wins last week set up a key contest at Lake for what was to be the conference title on Tuesday, February 11. Then the Bulldogs travel to Genoa to play the Comets tomorrow evening. The JV game begins at 6 p.m. and the varsity follows. Rossford Area Business & Service Directory Eric Davis drives to the basket during the Woodmore game.

ROSSFORD RECORD JOURNAL — February 13, 2014 — Page 3 Businesses sought to participate in RBA Fair Local businesses are invited to participate in the Rossford Business Association’s ninth annual Business Fair. The Business Fair will take place on Saturday, March 22, at Owens Community College in the Student Health and Activities Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participation fees are $110 for RBA members and $160 for non-members. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Business Fair co-chairman Justin Knierim of Edward Jones Investments said the planning committee is hoping that 80 businesses will participate this year. This will be the third year for the Business Fair to take place at Owens, Mr. Knierim said. “The location offers us handicap accessibility, ample parking, all vendors in one location, a larger food selection for our attendees, and a separate area for the entertainment,” he explained. The additional space also allows the fair to grow each year, Mr. Knierim said. “Since I’ve been involved the last seven years, the number of businesses has expanded,” he said. Mr. Knierim encouraged businesses to send in their reservations early to secure a spot at this year’s fair. The executive committee planning the event with Mr. Knierim includes co-chair Brenda Schwind of Directions Credit Union, Ray Miller of Miller Younker Group and Dr. Angela Jackson of Quality Family Eyecare. “The Business Fair offers RBA members and other businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services to a large group of people for a very small cost,” Mr. Knierim explained. “The businesses get the chance to speak with potential and existing customers one-on-one, thereby offering the best scenario for gaining new customers and additional sales to existing customers.” An emphasis on doing business locally is important as the economy continues to recover, he added. “In today’s tight economy, many businesses are searching for more cost effective ways to get their message to potential clients,” he said. “We believe the Rossford Business Fair gives them a great venue.” The business fair will feature giveaway items for visitors and entertainment. Businesses are invited to make a donation to the fair as a Gold, Silver or Bronze sponsor. The Gold level is $1,000, Silver is $500 and Bronze is $250.

Twenty-four carvers to compete for national championship Winterfest 2014 evening event tickets and ice sculptures available With only 10 days to go, the streets of downtown Perrysburg will come alive with excitement, family-fun activities, ice carvings of every imaginative design and two nights of music, food and favorite craft beers and wines. Downtown Perrysburg, Inc. (DPI) along with Ed Schmidt will present the annual Winterfest, a National Ice Carving Association (NICA) sanctioned event on Friday, February 21, Saturday, February 22, and Sunday, February 23. Perrysburg Winterfest will host the National Ice Carving Championship competition. Twenty-four first class master and professional ice carvers will compete for $5,000 of prize money and the national title and then display their ice creations. There will be two rounds of competition. The first round, carving a oneblock ice creation, will be Friday, February 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. The second round will be Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and use two blocks of ice. Each final ice creation will be professionally judged and results will be announced Saturday 8:30 p.m. during the wine tasting. In addition to the ice carving competition, there will be ice carvings sponsored by area businesses and organizations on both sides of Louisiana Avenue for public viewing. “Last year the pieces were conversation starters and essentially advertising that would pay for itself in word of mouth,” said Rick Thielen, DPI executive director. “The design possibilities are limitless that can create whatever mood you want–elegant, dramatic, fun or functional. A logo, intricately carved sculpture displays or artwork is not a problem.” Community ice carvings are $300 per block of ice that includes two tickets to the wine tasting. New in Winterfest 2014 will be the creation of a “community ice wall” made up of individual 5”x 8” blocks of ice that can be engraved per the donor’s wish. The cost is $20 for each block. The wall will be located in front of the Commodore Perry monument and lit for night-time viewing. “We are really excited about this new twist to Winterfest–it is a unique opportunity for everyone to feel like they are a part Team Ty fund-raiser Feb. 17 “Team Ty” of the Rossford Junior High School wrestling program will hold a fund-raiser Monday, February 17, at Marco’s Pizza in Rossford.

The tournament helps to raise funds for the Richardson Foundation, which purchases assistance dogs for autistic children.

Tickets are $15 each and include food and eight tastings. Tables of 10, which include 10 tickets, are available for $200. Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Louisiana Avenue will be transformed into a winter wonderland family fest with fun activities, crafts, Chortie the Clown, entertainment by Cindy Slee and Aaron Keaster and refreshments provided by the PASA Teen Board.

Saturday night, 7 to 10 p.m., hosted by Heidelberg Distributing, will feature more than 30 specialty wines. Taste of Perrysburg by area restaurants, entertainment and the National Ice Carving Championship awards ceremony will be part of the evening’s affair. Tickets are $35 each. Tables of 10, which also include 10 tickets, are available for $400. Both of these events sold out early last year, said Mr. Thielen. Again this year, there are a limited number of tickets due to tent capacity.

Certified therapy dogs and their handlers, from Serenity Farm Equestrian Center, visited the students for an educational visit, including an opportunity to work on reading and writing. Kindergarten and first grade students learned about the therapy dogs, asked questions and led the dogs through obstacle courses. Mrs. Belviso’s reading intervention groups created graphic organizers such as Venn Diagrams and KWL charts which included the following information: what we want to learn, what questions we have and what we have learned. The students also used their reading and writing skills to compose thank you notes after the visit. Pictured are students enjoying their visitors. Reading dogs are available at the Rossford Library on Monday evenings in February. Children may sign up to read to their favorite dog for a 15-minute time slot between 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. This program is free and open to all students. It is especially helpful in encouraging young readers who may be reluctant to read aloud. Call the library at 419666-0924 to reserve a time.
